Although winter doesn’t officially start until December 21st (for those of us in the northern hemisphere), here in Maine winter arrived several weeks ago with snow and cold temperatures.
As a follow up to our previous blog post about our Rover Mask™ , today, we’ll discuss best practices for cold weather storage and shipping.
Because our Rover Mask™ is a natural latex compound and does contain water, it is subject to freezing if exposed to temperatures at, or below, 32F/0C. The optimal storage temperature range is 65-70F (18-21C).
While we can protect the material when it is here in our warehouse, we have no control over what happens to it once it is handed over to your carrier for shipping. As a precaution, we avoid shipping Rover Mask™ on Fridays and we try to schedule shipments when we feel there is the least amount of risk for freezing in transit.
For best results, please be sure you are storing your Rover Mask™ in a temperature controlled environment, especially if you are lucky enough to live where it gets really cold!
